SPUNK is more than 5 words

Style

Professional

Unique

Your SPUNK will show through the balance that you create with the 5 elements mentioned above.

Work-from-home has only taken away focus from the bottoms, shoes and bags, not your entire outfit.

And please don appropriate bottom wear. You just may have to get up in between a meeting for something.

Style Scale

The Style Scale cannot be divided into watertight levels or compartments. It is a continuum, and you can upgrade or downgrade by adding or removing some elements.

  • Working in IT or the creative fields ? Sharp and formal business suits are a No-No for gaining acceptability. You need to walk the thin line between casual and sloppy. A dishevelled look is not professional, even if you have worked late for 3 nights, or were catching 40 winks on your office desk. Just remember that casual trousers count above denims, and a tailored shirt counts above a round-neck   Rock a jumpsuit with a shrug, or something in checks. Shrugs keep you warm in cold office environs.
  • Working in a bank ? Is it all greys and blues, jackets and closed shoes ? Rock the reds, or don a dress. Do not be weary of prints, just team it with black to stay higher on the style scale. Add a dash of style with a reverse or side French manicure, or a scarf /brooch that lifts the look.

5 rules Wikipedia doesn’t tell

These are about balancing the  Authentic and Appropriate.

Body shape

The attire should suit your body shape, not spill out of the HR policies or fashion blogs.

Affordability

It should suit your pocket. No more “50 Cents” celebrity style , which says that the cars and jewellery went back to the stores.

Being YOU

It should be an extension of your personality, not a super-imposed structure.

Show-case

Your attire is a show case for your personal and professional identity. This is visual merchandising at its best.

The Art and Science

It is as simple as being yourself, and as complex as crafting an image for the world. Revel in it .
